12.55PM UPDATE: A third person linked to the alleged murder of Gerogery man William Chaplin has been revealed as the jailed ex-husband of a woman on Thursday bailed for being an accessory after the fact.
Director of Public Prosecutions representative Alexander Dixon said Paul Anthony Watson was "still in custody in Victoria for another matter" and that the process was under way to facilitate his extradition to NSW.
It was not revealed what charge or charges might be laid against Watson, who the court heard was some years older than his wife.
Magistrate Richard Funston granted Samone Watson, 30, strict bail in Albury Local Court on Thursday morning, including the condition that she live at a Victorian address at Yarraweyah, west of Cobram.
She must report to Albury police each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, must be of good behaviour, has to attend court again on April 14 and all following mentions as directed and must not contact any prosecution witnesses, with two exceptions.
Watson is also banned from contacting a Queensland man charged with Mr Chaplin's murder, or her husband.
The man on the murder charge cannot be named as he was 16 at the time of the alleged offence in 2010.
Watson was also banned from holding a passport - which her defence later noted she did not have - and she is not allowed within 100 metres of any point of international departure.
These conditions were put before Mr Funston following discussions between the office of the DPP and Legal Aid NSW.
Mr Dixon said the DPP did not oppose bail, which came with the added proviso that someone offer a $7500 surety that would be forfeited should she not attend court.
Watson's now-partner, who was in court along with her father, had already offered to go surety.
He signed the relevant paper work about an hour after the bail hearing was completed.
Watson, wearing her blonde hair pulled back in a ponytail, smiled and gently waved several times when she saw her supporters on the video link to court.
She was visibly relieved when bail was granted.
The court was told it was imperative that she be released so as to care for her two young children during a "formative" time in their lives.
The children have been looked after by her parents since she went into custody on September 19.
Her case was adjourned to April 14, to line-up with her co-accused.
EARLIER: A 30-year-old woman charged with being an accessory after the fact in the alleged murder of Gerogery man William Chaplin was granted strict conditional bail this morning.
Samone Watson was visibly relieved when the decision was handed down in Albury Local Court by magistrate Richard Funston.
The set of bail conditions were agreed to by the Director of Public Prosecutions and the defence.
The court was told that it was imperative that Watson, who appeared via a video link to jail, be released in order to care for her two young children at what was a "formative" time in their lives.
Watson was ordered not to contact any prosecution witnesses, with two exceptions.
She must also not contact her co-accused; the man, who cannot be named because he was 16 at the time of the alleged offence, charged with Mr Chaplin's murder in 2010 and her ex-husband, Paul Anthony Watson, who is incarcerated in Victoria and is the subject of extradition inquiries by NSW authorities.
Watson's case was adjourned to April 14, which is when the man charged with murder will also next appear.
